Easy To Make Rocky Road Fudge Recipe

We love fudge and we make fudge every month here in our home. I like to make it and freeze it for later use because it freezes extremely well. When making fudge it is best to use a candy thermometer to make sure it reaches the perfect heating stage. This recipe for rocky road fudge is made in your microwave oven and is almost foolproof, so anyone can make a great tasting fudge!

Note: If you are allergic to walnuts...you can omit them!

Easy Rocky Road Fudge Recipe

2 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips
1 can (14 oz) sweetened condensed milk
1 tsp. vanilla extract
3 cups miniature marshmallows
1 1/2 cups finely chopped walnuts

Line a 13 x 9" baking pan with foil that has been greased lightly.

Microwave morsels and sweetened condensed milk in a large, uncovered microwave safe bowl on HIGH for 1 minute. Stir. Morsels may retain some of their shape. If neccessary, microwave an additional 10-15 seconds until melted and smooth. Stir in vanilla extract. Fold in miniature marshmallows and nuts.

Press mixture into prepared baking pan. Refrigerate until ready to serve. Lift from pan; remove foil. Cut into pieces and enjoy!

* Homemade fudge freezes very well. I like to wrap each piece in waxed paper or in plastic freezer wrap and then place all pieces in a plastic freezer container. I've found that it keeps nicely for up to 3 months in my freezer. Thaw pieces in your refrigerator overnight before serving the next day.
